Xia Wang received her B.S. and M.S. of mechanical engineering degree from University of Science and Technology Beijing (USTB), China in 1997 and 2000, respectively, and Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 2003. She joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Oakland University in 2005 as an assistant professor. Her research focuses on transport phenomena and scaling laws in fuel cells and turbulent boundary layers. Areas of research topics include:

    • Thermal Management of Batteries;(checking out our testing facilities)
    • Optimization of Biomass Pellets;
    • PEM Fuel Cells Modeling, Testing and Optimization;
    • New Materials for Bipolar Plates of PEM Fuel Cells;
    • Similarity Analysis of Transport Phenomena in PEM Fuel Cells;
    • Scaling Laws and Temperature Profile for the Turbulent Boundary Layer with Heat Transfer;
    • Scaling Laws and Velocity Profile for the Turbulent Boundary Layer subject to External Pressure Gradient.
